Kari is a pianist who plays all genres of music from classical to popular and everything in between! Available for weddings and other events, she has worked in the wedding industry since 2013 and has experienced multiple corporate events as a live musician.
This was my first time using this site to search for local musicians - Kari was very quick to respond, and was very knowledgable about the church we were having our ceremony to assist in things going smoothly. Although we decided to go with another musician through family connection, Kari would've been our top choice for picking on here due to her quick response, reasonable quote, and knowledge of our local ceremony venue!
Price Range: $200+
Gig Length: 30 - 240 minutes
What to Expect
I am not only a performer, but a seasoned planner. My extensive knowledge of music (in MANY styles and genres!) helps me put together a playlist that will best benefit your event and help you achieve your vision for any event. Because I am able to arrange and pick out music by ear, tweaking particular pieces to sound just the way you want them gives you the perfect sound – something that can't be achieved with just an iPod!
Kari is a 2014 graduate of Bradley University and a 2016 graduate of Illinois State University. Her master's degree is in collaborative piano – working with chamber ensembles and duos. She has been performing at weddings since 2013 and has extensive experience with various religious practices and venue accommodations.
